Britain's May pledges 20 billion extra pounds for healthcare post-Brexit

Britain's May pledges 20 billion extra pounds for healthcare post-Brexit

"The truth is that in spite of this welcome extra investment we will face hard choices and we need an honest debate about what the NHS can and cannot do", he said.

But that figure, famously advertised on the side of the pro-Brexit campaign bus back in 2016, ignored the money that Britain gets back from the EU.

Britain will have more money to spend on its health service when it leaves the European Union, even as it continues to make payments to the bloc, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday.

But the Shadow Health Secretary believes the five-year plan to increase spending on the NHS is "not enough money".

Mr Davis questioned the Scottish politician on the viability of Mrs May's cash injection following years of austerity implemented in the wake of the finance crisis of 2008.

The health service in Northern Ireland is set to benefit from around £600m extra funding a year in real terms by 2023.

Prime Minister Theresa May has claimed a "Brexit dividend" will be one of the ways the United Kingdom will pay for flushing more money into the NHS over the next seven years. The pledge drew immediate scepticism, with critics saying the plans lacked detail and questioning whether leaving the European Union would actually save money.

"The speculation about where it's coming from - particularly the "Brexit dividend" - is just not credible, as far as many commentators are saying".

After the worst winter on record for the NHS, the much-loved institution is in dire need of fresh funds but a decade of severe spending restraint means the extra cash will nearly certainly have to be generated by increasing taxes, something the Conservatives have traditionally been reluctant to do, though opposition to the idea appears to be softening.

And Paul Johnson, director of economic think-tank the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), said the only way the rise could be paid for was by an increase in taxes.

The Scottish politician noted the NHS is a pillar of British society and praised Theresa May for making it her top spending priority.

The prime minister was joined at the announcement by her chancellor, Philip Hammond and health secretary Jeremy Hunt.

"The devil is in the detail and the Tories have form of cutting other budgets when they are passing on consequentials which leaves the Scottish Government less than the health consequentials from the UK Government", she said. The settlement would equate to an average increase of around 3.4 per cent per year over the next five years.

May will pledge to increase the NHS budget by 20 billion pounds ($26.6 billion) a year, or 384 million pounds a week, after Brexit, according to front-page reports in the Sunday Times, Sunday Telegraph and Observer, which were published late on Saturday.

With so much at stake, it is only right that the public are given the chance to take a view on the final Brexit deal through a people's vote.

"We have looked carefully at what we have put into the NHS to ensure that we deliver world-class healthcare". "We want to see this long-term plan for the NHS delivering for the NHS".
